We know how challenging designing your home is. You want it to look elegant but you still want to be as minimalist as you can be.
But have you ever thought about trying to go minimally elegant? Yes, you read that right. Minimally elegant. Now, with AKEMI UCHI you can be the minimalist you are but still make your home elegant enough without having to squeeze your brain dry trying to combine those two concepts together.
Start reimagining your personal space with the freshly rebranded AKEMI UCHI. Now, you may ask, “Why rebranded? What’s the difference?” The home decoration brand is now going greener to help the planet. It is absolutely worth it to invest in redesigning your home sustainably. AKEMI UCHI offers a space that is both inspiring and convenient for urbanites who would like to invest in redesigning their personal space. The new store in Mid Valley Megamall also has a whole wide variety of designs and home furnishing items to subtly but significantly change the ambience in your space.
Now, let’s start on their effort in promoting sustainability and trying to make a positive impact on Mother Earth. The 4 pillars that hold up the brand’s effort in sustainability are: #PlanetPals, #ThreatToThreads, #CloseTheLoop and #DontPanicGoOrganic.
The first sustainability pillar of theirs is that they believe in choosing all eco-friendly materials. They use almost zero plastic for their packaging. “So what do they use if not plastic?” Fabric, of course! They are indeed using fabric as their packaging, especially for their bed linens and comforters. How sustainably creative is that? We were amazed when we saw it first too.
Take the packaging off, and it gets even more versatile! They can be reused as laundry bags, laptop or tablet cover — hey, be as creative as you want when reusing it. And when you’re done reusing it, you can recycle it in the future.
Just like the name of the pillar, they are turning a threat to the environment into threads! AKEMI UCHI recycles PET waste, or plastic waste as we are more familiar with, into their soft and comfortable sheets. So, let’s keep the oceans clean while sleeping in style and comfort.
Have you ever thought that woods can be turned into fibres? Neither did we — At least until we paid a visit to AKEMI UCHI. They are one of the biggest partners and the first official partner of TENCEL™ in South East Asia. TENCEL™ produces lyocell, which is a form of rayon, but made from wood pulps that are sustainably harvested. The production is a closed loop that recovers and reuses recycled materials up to 99%.
With the last pillar of AKEMI UCHI, not only can you help save the planet by contributing to environmentally friendly products, you can also reap the benefits on your own body. With the organic cotton that AKEMI UCHI uses for their products, it will feel as if you are resting on clouds. It’s also beneficial to avoid the risk of chemical exposure that you get from synthetic cottons or cottons that were grown with chemical fertilisers.
Now, we know what you’re thinking. If it’s environmentally friendly conscious, can it still be stylish? Eco-friendly products are often associated with dull, wood-like colours. Or even if it’s brightly coloured, it would be earth-y colours.
Rest assured because with AKEMI UCHI, you’re not just helping to save the planet but you can also upgrade your home or personal space into something stylish and chic. AKEMI UCHI doesn’t just offer a single concept of design, but four trendy styles altogether! Getting to shop for four unique styles at the same place? Now this is something you’ve got to experience in person.
But you know what’s the best part is? The styles that AKEMI UCHI offers are timeless. Not only that, but the quality is also amazing; so that means, you don’t have to keep on spending money on home decors that will either go out of trend or gets damaged easily.
AKEMI UCHI presents you timeless “Never Out Of Trend (NOOT)” style, elegance in every detail “Modern Luxe“, making simplicity the best accessory with “Contemporary” and finally, rustic, raw and edgy “Industrial” style.
Let us let you in on some tips:
If you would like to cheer up your space with colours, head over to the “NOOT” aisle for pastel colours and cute floral patterns. Don’t worry, the colours and patterns will never go out of style! The designs and patterns for “NOOT” will always be in style and will always make your home feel more homely. Want to take those colours up a notch and make it brighter? Head right to the next style aisle of “Contemporary” that offers you bright colours spicing up your space. You can never get bored experimenting with the textures in “Contemporary”. If you fancy something sleek yet simple, this aisle has all the contemporary aesthetics you’ll need.
Perhaps you like your space more elegant and chicer, say no more! Go for the “Modern Luxe” aisle and get your hands on some golden tinged accessories and elegant decorations like their soft and cool silk bedsheet. Even the smallest hint of “Modern Luxe” in your space will make the whole space radiate with elegance. Or maybe if you would want your space to look more raw and rustic, then the “Industrial” style is the one for you with its darker palettes and bold statement pieces. The rawness of “Industrial” will make you even more comfortable and relaxed in your own space as it reminds you of the simplicity of your primal self.
Hey, who knows, you might even feel sustainably creative and want to play around with combinations of all those four styles altogether in one space!
They even have fragrances to go with each concept that comes in both candles and diffusers. If you are in need of recommendations, our top 3 personal favourite would be the musky “Brandied Apple”, the floral scented “Vivid Bloom” and their “Cashmere Cream” that will absolutely elevate the elegance of your space. Or maybe you can browse for more fragrances here.
Even better news for you, there are 24 more fragrances coming up in the future, so keep your eyes out for the new ones!
The only thing that has it’s own aisle and not included in the four AU styles is their bedding accessories. However, the fun part of it is, they have a wide range of choice for their pillows. They have from firm to soft pillows and even regular to specially shaped pillows that cater to different types of customers with different lifestyle and sleeping styles.
To make it easier for you, AKEMI UCHI bedding section comes with detailed plaques of what you should know about their pillows. Not only that the basic information of the pillows are stated there, but it also has a rating of the pillows’ firmness, density, and how much support does it give you. You would also know the weight, the material and also the filler of the pillow. Have you ever been able to get to know your pillow this way anywhere else? Only in AKEMI UCHI you can!
One of their pillows that really caught our attention was the “Weldon Chiropractic Memory Pillow“. Of course, the memory foam and the shape caught our attention initially, but what intrigues us even more is how the foam pieces are detachable. Being able to adjust your pillow height without having to add another pillow? Take my money! Not only that, but the “Weldon Chiropractic Memory Pillow” will also help improve your posture. So, we absolutely recommend this pillow to those with sleeping breathing problems, and back problems.
So, what are you even waiting for now? Head over to their latest rebranded outlet of AKEMI UCHI in Mid Valley Megamall and start living sustainably in comfort!
